This is a bug in udev, and should be fixed there. The problem is that 
Marco d'Itri (the Debian maintainer of udev and the author of the 
scripts) has Debian-centric view on his package. Nobody except Debian 
use the copy-rules technique. This has already been discussed on 
linux-hotplug-devel, and he (according to your message, falsely) assures 
that his scripts work with both methods: retry-uevents (recommended) and 
copy-rules (Debian-specific).

I propose to drop installation of the persistent helpers until this (and 
the wish about serial-based CDROM persistence and path_id-based network 
card persistence) is properly fixed upstream.

P.S. Sorry, I have to go to the conference in less than 24 hours, and 
won't be able to discuss this issue from there - no Internet access.
